Christina Aguilera will once again be a big part of Super Bowl Sunday… sort of.
The singing superstar, who famously flubbed the National Anthem at the 2011 event, will now join her fellow judges – country darling Blake Shelton, Maroon 5 vocalist Adam Levine and the sassy Cee Lo Green – on "The Voice," which NBC revealed on Tuesday is getting the coveted time slot after the 2012 big game, which will air on the network.

"There is no better showcase on television than to follow the Super Bowl, and we believe 'The Voice' is deserving of such high-profile exposure," Chairman of NBC Entertaiment, Bob Greenblatt said in a statement. "The attention grabbing blind audition phase of 'The Voice' has mass appeal and will fittingly team up with the biggest sporting event of the year."
The post-Super Bowl episode of "The Voice" will air on February 5, 2012.
Thanks to the excitement of the blind auditions, where the coaches — Christina, Blake, Adam and Cee Lo – picked contestants they couldn't see, the show is already a success in its first season.
Presently the coaches' own picks are battling it out with each other for a top spot with their mentor. They'll then move to live rounds where the singers will compete with vocalists from different mentors.
"The Voice" currently airs on Tuesdays at 10/9 C on NBC. Beginning June 7, the show will move to 9/8 C.
